Apple to the Core

Photos from Apple Hill.

Located in the Sierra Foothills, along Highway 50, just outside of Placerville, Apple Hill is a great day trip. Driving through farms and orchards you can sample apple pastries, fresh apples of many varieties picked yourself or from the farm, visit pumpkin patches, and view great fall color (at least for California).

We were a bit early last weekend for the fall color, which should peak in a few weeks, but there were some lovely splashes of orange and gold to be found.

And there never was an apple, in Adam's opinion, that wasn't worth the trouble you got into for eating it.

  1. My only issue with the area is the traffic. It's bumper-to-bumber during October weekends entering and exiting the Apple Hill area. I guess it's too much of a good thing!

    I find that the best way to visit the area is go later in the afternoon on Saturday or Sunday.

    Anyway, I have a few nice photos on my blog. I hope to post a few more this weekend.
